Keli Holiday’s raw, energetic and unapologetic EP JESTERMAN is out 24 MayJESTERMAN is the beginning of a new chapter, abundant with authenticity and raw ideas which whittle down the madness into a breathtaking statue of Keli Holiday.

Keli Holiday is the lovechild from the mind of Adam Hyde, one half of 10x platinum selling, multi-ARIA award winning electro-duo Peking Duk, formed living off of nothing but New Order records, beer, and sleepless nights in New York City. For his latest venture, he has enlisted some star studded collaborators in the form of Twin Shadow (Alt J, HAIM, Lady Gaga, Flume, Billy Idol, The Drums) who co-produced the record, with singles brought into being with Kirin J Callinan, blackpaw, and Dante Knows. 

A dominatrix of the dance-floor, JESTERMAN highlights Holiday’s versatility and diverse sonic inspiration reminiscent of 90s britpop, new-age disco and an echoing of alternative rock. lowdown bottles the turbulent essence of a relationship that is both poisonous and irresistible: Think it’s time to go now / Baby so slow down / but I guess I’m going back / fuck, I love it.

“Lowdown talks about the push and pull of a toxic relationship that unfortunately a lot of us know all too well. You know it’s bad but you can’t stop. You’re just as bad as one another and love it,” said Holiday.

Holiday continued, “This song was born in the beachwood canyon bungalow with Twin Shadow and Blackpaw. We started with the bass and I riffed some spoken word. We then thought it would be a fun time trying to juxtapose the minor sections with a bright chorus that feels like sunshine through the palm trees on a pill of ecstasy. It feels like two songs in a way and I love that.”
